Black students demand segregated spaces from white students

http://www.thecollegefix.com/post/25748/

Black college students across the country have demanded that they be segregated from white peers, calling for “safe spaces” on campuses meant only for so-called students of color.

The requests for segregated spaces are found among some of the demand lists put forth by students who took part in protests this fall alleging their campuses are oppressive, discriminatory, and represent institutionalized racism.

At UCLA, the Afrikan Student Union is insisting upon an “Afrikan Diaspora floor” as well as an “Afro-house.”

“Black students lack spaces where they feel safe and comfortable,” the UCLA demands state. “The Afrikan Diaspora floor is a way for us to connect more to other Black students, the Afrikan Student Union, and the Afro-Am department. The floor should be branded as a safe space for all Black students.”



lol just lol

White people don't need safe spaces because there is not a racism problem with white people, black people might want a safe place so crackers like you don't come in when they're tryna discuss racism and start being like "omg u so racist"

I mean... This is not the way to achieve a happy, harmonious campus where race is not an issue, is it?

Nice to see the regressives are taking over college campuses. I thought debate was the way forward not segregation

Are you sure the people proposing this aren't some South Africans in blackface?

Say something against it and you are racist.
Welcome pseudo-developed society.

It's more that to me, when the ideal situation seems to be educating and attempting to eradicate discriminitory behaviour such as racism, locking yourself away and saying 'la la la I can't hear you' is silly, immature, and will only perpetuate the shitty situation the world is in for generations to come.

It's very much the sort of response Tumblr would think is appropriate.




Which means it's utterly the wrong way to handle it.

nah yeah that seems reasonable

black people at universities getting together in a room without white people for a change, discussing and exploring their experiences of whiteness and racism for like 20 minutes...

seems like the only likely outcome of such a silly, immature idea is that they will perpetuate racism. Silly black people, they just won't stop making people racist will they?

That's not the point,

By locking themselves away in a room to decompress and complain about racism, they do far less than empowering themselves. The world isn't a pretty place, but no problem has ever been solved by locking yourself in a room and sulking about it.

They aren't making people racist. They are on the other hand making it easy for people to continue to be racist and are doing a great job of leaving themselves utterly unprepared for the real world.
